Mac Users: Browser preference?

So...Mac users!

Do you prefer Camino, Firefox, Flock, or Safari?

Are there any great browser plugins for any of these four that work really well in a Mac?





I've just downloaded Camino, which means I now have all four on my computer. Obviously, I want to pare this down to two (I'd like to keep Safari just because it's the default for the computer).

Have you seen the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile in person?

I saw it yesterday for the second time in my life. I've never gone out of my way to see it, it just appears. It's amazing.

Are you glad it's August? What do you have planned for this month?

I'm entertaining my boyfriend's mother while she visits, finishing my internship, making the 8 hour drive home, going to Michigan, going to Virginia, seeing Modest Mouse (I hope), starting school, throwing a party, and seeing my boyfriend off to Ireland for the school year.

Do you have a totally busy job full of insane people and huge amounts of stress with no down time?
Or are you one of those people who sit around all day, doing nothing, can't find enough work to do, and you end up surfing the internet while filling a seat and collecting a paycheck?

If you're one of the first people, how totally mad and jealous are you when you hear about others needing to find ways to occupy their time at work? Also, what is your job?

If you're one of those second people, what is your job and how can I get it?




I'm a high school secretary and my job is ridiculously busy and stressful. (And underpaid.) God bless those summers off, though........ I don't think I'd trade them for the world.

Why did the Humane Society scare me off from adopting one of their dogs? Don't they want the poor animals adopted out?

They kept warning me that the dogs hate other dogs (I don't have any other dogs!) or that they will eat anything that touches the floor (I don't make a habit of dropping food on the floor!) or that they hate kids (I don't have kids!) and despite telling them everything would be fine, they told me I should just wait until a more subdued dog comes in.

-Are you having a good or bad day?

-Who was the last person that spoke to you?

-Ever made crab cakes? How'd they turn out?

My father in law referred me to a friend he knew for twenty years at a Harris bank, so I met with her, really nice lady, I wouldn't even call it an interview(she didn't ask me questions such as what is your best quality). She has emailed me 3-4 times so far now, and told me she would contact her friend at the diversity (i'm deaf and a woman) department about getting me a job within Harris Bank. This friend at the diversity department has just contacted me today. That makes it 5 emails from Harris bank employees. Do you think I have a very good shot at getting hired? Yes I'm obsessing.

How far, how often did you see them, hardest part, and for how long?

I'm about to move in with my sister to finish my senior year of HS partly so I can see my bf more, since staying here means not seeing him at all.  We'll probably only get to see each other 2 times a month, which is better than nothing.  No, I can't stay and lie to see him.  Tried that and now I'm in this mess.

1. You know how when you try a new shampoo, the scent is really strong?  And after a week, it is not as strong?  Is that because the scent is less noticeable to you because you have become accustomed to it or because your body gets used to the chemical make-up of the shampoo?  (And I'm entirely sure this is LOL-worthy...but I am an idiot)

2. Do you think the green Xerox lights are harmful to your eyes?

Media Player

I've got Windows Media Player (version 11) on my computer, and (annoyingly) have only just today realised that it automatically imports Every. Single. Picture. from various folders on my computer into it.  I never use WMP so it's been doing this since whenever, I would assume. 

I clicked on Library > Folder and deleted the 'My Music' folder from the list (the one where I keep my files), and it disappeared. However, whenever I save any more pics to there it immediately imports them into media player. DO NOT WANT. I've tried Tools > Options, and can't find where to prevent this from happening. Their 'help' index is less than helpful. Is it possible to block ALL photos/pictures from media player?

I bought myself a car yesterday. (2005 suzuki aerio sx)

Problem is that I don't listen to CDs, I have an ipod that has most of my music collection on it. My experience with FM tuners for the ipod has been less then spectacular, the ones I've used so far have had really bad static issues.
The only other option I know of besides an FM tuner is to get a new ipod-friendly stereo, which would run me about 150$ at the lowest.

Should I cough up the 150 for a new stereo or try to find a better quality FM tuner to save myself the 70-100$?

EDIT: I read on AOL news that someone said it's not yet confirmed if it's a terrorist attack..and more than likely it isn't.  I was listening to the radio (B96) and they had someone on the phone that had worked for 25 years in some sort of construction or another and he said the bridge was checked out in 2006 and there was noticeable cracking.  HELLLLLLOOOO LAWSUIT!

2. Etiquette question - we were house shopping by ourselves, then a realtor who is a family friend contacted us and started finding houses for us to look at. She always shows us houses listed with realty companies, however I keep seeing interesting "for sale by owner" houses in my neighborhood. Will a realtor work with someone selling their house themselves? Should we ask the realtor to call the owners to see their homes, or just go ourselves? It's not like we hired this realtor, but I'm not sure if we're obligated to see houses with her since she is doing so much legwork.

Awhile ago I asked a question about getting my ears re-pierced.

Well, lo and behold, my brother got married on Saturday, and the bride gave all bridesmaids matching earrings to wear during the ceremony, so I had my mom go ahead and poke those suckers through my old holes.
Now, my right ear wasn't fully closed, the earring went right in and I didn't even feel it. The left ear, however, needed a little tough love, and I got to hear a lovely POP! when it went through.
So,

1. Have you ever closed your eyes and applied a little pressure, say from rubbing your eyes, and 'seen' crazy stuff like fractals and gears and geometric shapes and spiders? Just me, then?

2. If you have, WHAT IS THAT? I've been wondering since I was a kid.

3. If you look at something bright and squint 'til your eyes are almost closed, can you see little circles and squiggles and stuff floating around? What is that?

1a] What did your elementary school waste money on to keep you safe from?

Underage drinking, Drunk Driving, Unprotected sex, Smoking, Weed, Recycling. I should send them a check when I get older.

Egg white omelet with hot sauce, red crushed peppers, with mushrooms and hash browns. Oh, and grilled cheese bagel with crushed potato chips sprinkled on top.

3] What do you doodle when you're bored in school?

Lyrics, mostly. Shapes with patterns in them. My friend's names.

Top Chef. Crazy drama.

When I go into work this friday I'm giving my two weeks notice. Besides just "oh hey, I'm leaving in two weeks, peace", what's something short and sweet to tell my manager? He acts sweet, but I'm almost afraid of him guilting me into working longer, he's good at that.
Not serious answers are welcome :D

Also, in two weeks I'm going with my family to visit my grandparents. My boyfriend is coming with me so he can meet my grandparents. I'd like him to meet my grandfather especially, since he isn't in good health and we don't really know how much time he has. I haven't had anyone I've dated meet my grandparents before, so now I'm wondering what to really do. Should I suggest a gift? Ask him to dress not like a hippie? Perform magic tricks?

Baltimore Locals:

I'm going to the Virgin Festival this weekend. Driving down to my uncle's outside of Baltimore, and then finding my way to Pimlico from there. I was going to buy the outrageously-priced parking the venue sells through ticketmaster on advice from my uncle about the area, but it seems to be unavailable.

Now, I'm not unfamiliar with shady/bad areas considering I live in what is usually considered one, but I love my body and my car and I don't want anything harmful to happen to either of them. I'm familiar with inner harbor area Baltimore, but not Pimlico.

Should I still drive in and find other parking? Should I drive to a subway station closeby and take the shuttle instead? Should I carpool with the friends I'm meeting up there?

3. What is absolutely the best thing about your period?

4. Have you ever had to leave school or work or whatever you were doing because of your period?

5. How comfortable are you about talking about your period? Is it taboo with you and your friends?

And for people who don't get periods (lucky you!):

6. How uncomfortable are you with this subject?
